Even the AP and Yahoo News know that there will be election chaos

The AP story below has the usual over-assurance to the nervous public, and blames citizens for doing things wrong.

Perhaps the most stunning result would be an electoral college tie, which would require members of the next House to select the winner. It’s not likely, but certainly possible.

More likely scenarios could involve Election Day confusion, long lines and possible legal challenges at various polling places. Such scenes will have limited national impact unless they occur in a state where the Obama-McCain contest is extremely close and positioned to determine the overall outcome…

Far more Election Day problems stem from human errors than from equipment malfunctions, said Kimball W. Brace, president of Election Data Services Inc., a Washington-based political consulting company…

In past elections, Democrats say GOP operatives have used disinformation and scare tactics to try to suppress voting in heavily Democratic precincts, including predominantly black neighborhoods…

The McCain and Obama campaigns have poured substantial resources into heading off problems and streamlining voting by their supporters…
